When you live in a home in Seton, you can rest easy knowing you’ve made a sustainable choice. In a broad sense, this means the processes you complete in your daily life will continually be supported, but what does sustainable living really look like, and how was it incorporated into the aspects of this community?

If you are looking for a new home in Calgary or already live here, be rest assured that the homes and amenities in this community were designed and crafted to maximize long-term use with minimal footprint. Often looked at in three categories – environmental, economic, and social – read on to learn how each of these aspects are considered.


Designed with sustainability in mind, 130,000 sq ft of the Urban District in Seton is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified by the Canada Green Building Council. This means each building was created to reduce operating costs, lower carbon emissions and conserve resources through sustainable practices.

In Seton, 16 acres of land has been devoted to park space with an extensive biking pathway system. When completed, this pathway system will connect with one of the largest pathway networks in the world, the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway, which further connects to nearly 1000 kms of trails, making it easy for residents to get outside and enjoy nature in an eco-friendly and active way.


With the inclusion of Seton Urban District, the community is a hub for business and growth. From the South Health Campus to numerous restaurants, spas, and entertainment facilities, you can live and work in Seton. This makes the community a place where you can grow not just your family, but your career. This also means the community has amenities the residents need without having to venture into other parts of the city.


The Brookfield Residential YMCA at Seton is the world’s largest YMCA and one of many social hubs in the community. With recreational facilities and classes, a performance theatre, library and café, this space is perfect for residents looking for fitness, arts or connection.  This means you can build and sustain connections with your neighbours and find support to help your family thrive. The Seton Homeowners Association (HOA) is also planned as an exclusive spot for Seton residents to meet up, practice sports and fitness, and celebrate and bond with their family and community.
